Reeling from their 30-20 road defeat to a division rival, the Denver Broncos (6-3) are left with far more answers than they’d prefer. The reigning Super Bowl champions now have the disheartening task of taking on the New Orleans Saints (4-4) team that is coming off of two consecutive impressive wins.

The Broncos offense must get itself off of life support, while the defense must find a way to keep from getting bulldozed in the run game. A loss here could send this team into a tailspin.

Game time

Kickoff is set for Sunday, November 13, 2016 at 11:00 a.m. Mile High time at Mercedes-Benz Superdome in New Orleans, Louisiana.

Spanish radio KNVR (1150 AM) will also broadcast the game with Javier Olivias (play-by-play) and Carlos Valdez (color analyst).

Odds

The Broncos are now underdogs for the second week in a row and this time it does not appear that they will be able to overcome that. They need a spark. Hopefully the spark comes this week! The line opened even, but has since moved three points in the Saints favor. That suggests the Saints are six point favorites, which is a bit ridiculous.

Participation

No Aqib Talib and no Derek Wolfe, but the Broncos did dodge several other wounded players from going missing in action this week. This Bye Week cannot get here fast enough.

Quotable

This game is going to come down to Trevor Siemian and whether or not he can overcome his tendencies to play small in big moments.

“He’s fine,” head coach Gary Kubiak said of Siemian. “As a matter of fact, he’s had a really good week so he needs to play well. Obviously, we all have to play well, but I think he’s feeling good.”

Predictions

My confidence level in Siemian and this offense is at an all-time low over the last two seasons. That’s significant considering how much last years’ offense struggled. Siemian is the same quarterback he was in Week 1 and defenses have figured out his tendencies and are successfully keeping him flustered and confused. I fear the turnovers are about to start coming.

The Saints have a terrible defense, but any NFL defense can lock down the left side of the field and focus on stopping the run. I expect the same thing in this game, but I remain hopeful that Siemian will break through somehow. If not, this is my score prediction.

Prediction: Saints 27, Broncos 16
